High commission discusses investment, development with CM Kamal

QUETTA  : Australian High Commissioner to Pakistan Margaret Adamson has called upon Balochistan Chief Minister Jam Kamal Khan to discuss investment opportunities in Balochistan. The provincial chief informed the Australian high commissioner regarding investment opportunities in provincial sectors and the provincial government’s social and economic development initiatives.

“The livestock, mineral, fisheries and agriculture sectors have dozens of investment opportunities while we have opened our doors for international companies by adopting new amendments in provincial investment policy,” Jam Kamal informed Adamson.

He added that the government was utilising all its resources to boost the provincial economy through existing natural resources. “We have been working on strategies to boost these sectors which have the capacity to change the fortunes of the impoverished people of Balochistan.”

Kamal also briefed the high commissioner on the law and order situation in the province. “While the situation is fragile, the provincial government is working on security, while fencing on the border with Afghanistan has helped prevent the movement of terrorists,” he apprised her.

Expressing interest in provincial resources, Adamson said that the Australian government is willing to invest in provincial natural resources and taking part in provincial development through multi-donor trust funds. “We have been providing assistance to the provincial government in rehabilitation of flood victims of Pishin and Qilla Abdullah”, she added.

She expressed these views while addressing students and faculty at the Balochistan University of Information Technology, Engineering and Management Sciences (BUITEMS) on Friday.

Adamson said Australia would continue to cooperate in the sectors of education, livestock, agriculture and water resources in Pakistan, especially Balochistan. “There are many common aspects among Pakistanis and Australians, of which cricket is on top,” she said.

She said providing quality education to Balochistan’s youth and polishing their hidden capabilities through various educational training programs would ensure their bright future. She said BUITEMS was one of the best educational institutions in Balochistan which was providing utmost research opportunities to young scholars.

The Australian high commissioner also apprised students of scholarship programmes made available to Pakistani students by Australian institutions. “We want Balochistan’s students to take advantage of these scholarships and grants.”

Later, a delegation headed by the Australian high commissioner visited various departments of the university including the Centre of Excellence of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

A ‘European Silk Road’

publication_icon Philipp Heimberger ,  Mario Holzner and Artem Kochnev wiiw Research Report No. 430, August 2018  43 pages including 10 Tables and 17 Figures FREE DOWNLOAD The German version can be found  here . In this study we argue for a ‘Big Push’ in infrastructure investments in greater Europe. We propose the building of a European Silk Road, which connects the industrial centres in the west with the populous, but less developed regions in the east of the continent and thereby is meant to generate more growth and employment in the short term as well as in the medium and long term. After its completion, the European Silk Road would extend overland around 11,000 kilometres on a northern route from Lisbon to Uralsk on the Russian-Kazakh border and on a southern route from Milan to Volgograd and Baku. Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
